This image is based on a memory of my son and me playing on the sliding board at a park near our home. Having children makes you see the world through new eyes again. You remember the thrill of riding a bike fast down a hill, or standing on the edge of the high diving board. A friend snapped a photo of me and my son John at the top of an old and very high sliding board, preserving this moment for us. John is now at the beginning of his adult life and facing an uncertain future, but with the same sense of adventure that he had on this day.
